Our nation faces immense challenges in classrooms and communities. Yet at this moment millions of young Americans are ready, willing, and able to serve the country’s needs. Over the past two years, AmeriCorps has received 1.1 million applications for just 160,000 positions.
Imagine the impact if we could unleash this passion to serve to assist teachers, tutor in community centers, work in health clinics, and more. Not only does this solve problems, but it puts young people to work at a time when more than 1 in 6 is unemployed.
OneMillionNewJobs.org is a bold campaign to make this happen.
With you, we are creating a powerful voice with the goal of one million voices strong demanding that presidential candidates pledge and Congress create one million jobs by expanding public service programs such as AmeriCorps, CitiYear, and more.
